Arriving soon at Chitter Chatter HQ is Nokia’s exciting new flagship smartphone, the Lumia 930. Successor to the Nokia Lumia 925, the Nokia Lumia 930 is right up there with the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Xperia Z2 in the new premium tier of high end smartphones for this year. Want to find out why? Then read our Nokia Lumia 930 review below.
First, let’s talk about the casing. It’s the trademark Lumia colourful polycarbonate case with a tough unibody aluminium frame underneath. With a compact and sturdy design, the Lumia is shorter in the body than many phones with a similar size screen and comes in at a slimmish 9.8mm in depth. Speaking of screen size, the 930 boasts a stunning 5-inch Full HD OLED display. The display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 which gives it an impressively sharp 441 pixels per inch. The Lumia 930 comes in a choice of vibrant colours as we would expect from a Nokia handset – as well as bright orange and bright green, it’s also available in black or white.
The 930 will run on Windows Phone’s latest operating system, Windows Phone 8.1, which now includes a fantastic new notification centre, a universal search (so you can search for items on your handset too), Internet Explorer 11 (which can be synched with a laptop or Windows 8 tablet so you can view the same webpage on your phone and then pick it up on your laptop or tablet) and there’s now 3 columns of live tiles rather than 2. The new Text Flow predictive text means that you can just swipe the keyboard to type messages and emails and the more you use it, the better the predictions will become as it gets to know how you write.
The Pureview camera on the rear of the Lumia 930 is one of its most impressive features packing in 20 megapixels, optical image stabilisation and a dual LED flash. It’s simple to use and there’s camera app software to add filters and special effects to your photos. For recording video, the 930 comes with 4 microphones for enhanced sound quality. There’s a 2-megapixel camera on the front.
On the inside, there is a decent, albeit not sector leading, 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. In terms of memory, the generous 32GB of onboard storage should be more than enough for most people and the 2420mAh battery will easily provide at least 15 hours of talk time on 3G.
Look out for the Nokia Lumia 930’s arrival in the UK very shortly and of course the most competitive Nokia Lumia 930 price from us here at Chitter Chatter.
